Simulated dataset MinBias_TuneZ2star_8TeV-pythia6 in AODSIM format for 2012 collision data.
See the description of the simulated dataset names in: About CMS simulated dataset names.
These simulated datasets correspond to the collision data collected by the CMS experiment in 2012.
These data were generated in several steps (see also CMS Monte Carlo production overview):
Global Tag: START50_V13::All
Configuration file for SIM (link)
Output dataset: /MinBias_TuneZ2star_8TeV-pythia6/Summer12-START50_V13-v3/GEN-SIM
Step HLT RECO
Global Tag: START53_V7A::All
Configuration file for HLT (link)
Configuration file for RECO (link)
Output dataset: /MinBias_TuneZ2star_8TeV-pythia6/Summer12_DR53X-PU_S10_START53_V7A-v1/AODSIM
To make these simulated data comparable with the collision data, pile-up events are added to the simulated event in this step.
The pile-up dataset is:
The generation and simulation of Monte Carlo data has been validated through general CMS validation procedures.
You can access these data through the CMS Open Data container or the CMS Virtual Machine. See the instructions for setting up one of the two alternative environments and getting started in
